We set up our next OB appointment today and I talked to the nurse about some cramping I've had. She called about a half an hour later and said Doc wanted to see me for an emergency ultrasound, just in case. So, I called Krys, drove much to fast to pick him up from work and off we went. We got in and waited quite awhile for our appointment, but eventually it was our turn. He explained he wanted to check for a tubal (or ectopic) pregnancy. (Just in case you don't know what that is, the embryo implants in fallopian tubes instead of the uterus where it's supposed to implant.) He started the ultrasound and said "Oh, this looks great!" What a relief. Buggy is safe and sound and in exactly the right spot. The heartbeat was 160 and the baby is 7 weeks and 5 days old.
